Visual storytelling with Muyi Xiao

Muyi Xiao, the visuals editor at ChinaFile, is in the guest seat in this week’s episode of the NüVoices Podcast, hosted by Chenni Xu. In this episode, she talks about her previous work as a multimedia reporter at Tencent, the changing nature of the field of photojournalism, her fellowship at the Magnum Foundation, and her role at Chinese Storytellers, a collective that amplifies the voices of Chinese nonfiction content creators.

For self-care, Muyi recommends therapy (she has Skype sessions with her therapist in Beijing), and Chenni recommends daily meditation and the app Insight Timer.
